that the economy is starting to gain traction, but it's still very slow traction. we do know that if you had the average amount of money a person has in a 401(k), $77,000, invested in the dow jones industrial average when it hit its all-time high five years ago, today you have basically not made a penny. in fact, you've lost money because inflation, though small, has eaten up more than that. you've made no money on dow jones. normally one would expect a return of 4% to 8% a year. the stock market has a long way to go. a lot more money is going into stocks. they seem to be paying better now than bonds and other debt instruments. that's very important. that's one thing. job growth is absolutely real. there's no question about it. unfortunately, when the sequester really starts to bite, about three months' worth of job gains, $250,000 per month or $750,000, will be lost. so unemployment will remain at the same level or increase just slightly in the united states if they don't settle this thing. and then finally, are we likely to have a recession because of all this? the answer is likely

quote growing economy that produces upward mobility. it will provide the economic security that we need for families. it will help secure retirement for seniors and expand opportunity for young people having a hard time finding careers and jobs in the stagnant economy. the final point i want to make is -- and i mentioned this to the president the other day -- we want to revise the budget process so we have regular order. that means let's do our jobs. that means we want to pass a budget here in the house. we are very pleased that the senate is passing a budget or will attempt to pass a budget. what that means is reviving a process that is not in the back room but that shows how we are going to accomplish these goals. we want to revise this budget process so at the end of the day we can have a vehicle to get something done. i don't think the president disagrees with that. this is an invitation. show us how to balance the budget. if you don't like the way we are proposing to balance the budget, how do you propose to balance a budget? are we going to continue to be complicit with never balancin

dangerfield. when is he going to get some credit for this amazing economy that's coming back? it definitely is coming back, maybe not like gangbusters. that unemployment rate really dropped again and a quarter million new jobs out there. and the stock market for the rich is going through the roof. when is this guy going to get some respect? republicans, when are they going to set some standards. when he gets to this number, we'll love him. will they ever admit he's doing a good job? >>> someone who admits he was wrong. bill clinton wrote an op-ed in "the washington post," i couldn't believe it when i saw it, saying the defense of marriage act, which he signed into law, should be overturned. he says not only did the law provide an excuse for discrimination, the law itself was discriminatory. >>> i'm fascinating with the jockeying taking place in both parties for 2016. rand paul is running, jeb bush is running, and hillary clinton, we'll be waiting for her. when does she decide? we'll ask that and get to all this. >>> what happens when you're too far right for cpac? you charge them

unemployment rate dropped to 7.7%. the economy may not be as good as it could be but it is stronger than many thought. and on wall street the dow set record high after record high this week. closing up another 67 points today and showing gains on all five trading days for a weekly rise of 307 points. corporate profits, dividends and other payouts to investors are soaring. i am still playing stocks and the economy from the optimistic side. and in washington a new president obama engaged in deficit dinner diplomacy with those very same republican senators he was bashing only a week ago. this is good in my opinion. now we are hearing that former president bill clinton may have put obama up to it by turning the president into the new schmoozer in chief. i'm going to cover it all this evening. "the kudlow report" begins right now. >>> first up tonight, our sizzle story. a better-than-expected jobs report in february. cnbc's courtney reagan joins us now with the details. good evening, courtney. >> good evening to you, larry. and what a beat it was. nice jobs report. the government's latest emp
